The purpose of the SNC is threefold. 1) Report on your chapter’s progress this year, 2) introduce the slate of officers for the National Council and 3) discuss proposed amendments to the Bylaws . The focus of chapter conversation will be the transition between your chapter and the incoming chapter. The slate and amendments will be available for your review in the Guide to Governance. The SNC is a virtual conference and you can participate from any location. The chapter president is encouraged to serve as the official delegate; but if that is not possible, name another officer or leader to be the official delegate. Advisors are welcome on the call.
Mortar Board's 102nd Birthday is February 15!
Mortar Board Week is the national celebration of our Society’s founding. It is a great time to draw attention to your chapter with a campus event. Chapters often plan at least one activity during Mortar Board Week, though some even plan daily activities. Make sure you take advantage of this time. Spread the word about Mortar Board by creating a display in the student union or wearing chapter t-shirts.

Select, select, select, depending on your chapter’s schedule, you may be able to use Mortar Board Week as part of your selection strategy. Serve your campus, honoring Mortar Board’s Ideal of service is a great way to commemorate the Society’s founding. Be social, give members the chance to celebrate Mortar Board’s founding. Document your activities , don't forget take photos and video footage of your chapter’s activities during Mortar Board Week to share on social media and incorporate into the video your chapter is preparing for the Mortar Board National Conference this year !
